Kingsbury Grade Lane Closures Start September 11

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Department of Transportation will begin a project Monday to enhance roadway drainage pipes on Kingsbury Grade.

Between September 11 and late summer of 2018, single lane closures with a traffic flagger will periodically be in place on the Carson Valley side of Kingsbury Grade between mileposts 3 and 11. The single lane closures will primarily take place Mondays through Fridays between 7 am and 5 pm, with periodic Saturday lane closures. Motorists should anticipate travel delays of up to 30 minutes through the work zone. Construction will not take place during major special events or the December, January and February winter construction shutdown.

The approximately $4.4 million project by contractor Q&D Construction is a proactive measure to help preserve roadway stability and safety for all of those who rely on Kingsbury Grade to connect Tahoe and the Carson Valley.

The section of road is traveled by approximately 5,600 vehicles daily, with many of the drainage features first constructed by federal agencies in the 1960s. NDOT also has future plans to improve other areas of roadway drainage on the highway.

In recent years, NDOT has dedicated approximately $54 million to improving roadway drainage and preserving stormwater quality along Tahoe-area state roadways.
